On the P1-B RH budget cut

News Release
07 January 2016

Statement of Senator Pia S. Cayetano
Principal Sponsor, Reproductive Health (RH) Act

“As the principal sponsor of the RH law, I am shocked that the RH budget was slashed by P1 billion. At every stage of the 2016 budget process, I had asked for details. This was work in progress and the detailed amendments were not readily available. Thus, we work on a basis of trust – that the Chair of the finance committee would not make significant changes without informing the body, or in the case of RH, no major changes will be made without informing me, knowing that I sponsored the measure.”

“As of this time, my office is looking into this because this is totally unacceptable.” #
